Description

Prooflike Near-Gem 1831 Quarter Eagle, BD-1

1831 $2 1/2 MS64 NGC. Breen-6134, BD-1, R.4. The reverse of this die pairing is a carryover from 1830, an indication of the small mintages of this denomination that were the rule. Another indication of the small mintages is the number of coins auctioned as proofs, or exhibiting prooflike characteristics, as is the case here. The fields are fully prooflike on both sides, although a random scuff in the luster appears here and there. The strike is slightly soft in the centers, but it is full elsewhere. Liberty's lower hair curls, in particular, are marvelously well-detailed. The surfaces are bright yellow-gold, with minor planchet adjustment marks on a couple of the vertical shield stripes on the reverse. Bass-Dannreuther comment that "there are so many coins of this date that nearly qualify as Proofs that even recent auction appearances must be taken with a grain of salt." Census: 11 in 64, 8 finer (11/09).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25FM, PCGS# 7671)
